Re: New monitor advice.

said by chmod:

The size scares me because I don't have a high end video card right now. I want to future proof myself on the monitor but I think that will cripple anything I can run right now.

The physical size of the monitor has no effect or additional strain on the video subsystem and the resolution is the same as the ASUS VS239H-P 23" you were asking about earlier,....

So if you were considering the ASUS VS239H-P 23" then then I see no practical reason to have issue with the 27" monitors,...

Yeah the size don't matter. Its the resolution he is moving up to that is a MAJOR problem if he games. A better card is needed or he will be extremely disappointed when trying to run games at 1080p with decent settings. OP should list systems specs for we can tell you if 1080p gaming is worth it on said system. You need a decent cpu and ram as well. Which we have no idea what they have.

I guess that could be a problem. For some reason I thought the OP was running an HD 7770 rather then an HD 7750 and that does make a difference.

Still a monitor upgrade is only half an upgrade and likewise a video card upgrade is only half an upgrade.

The OP can either upgrade the video card to something that is overkill for the current monitor or the OP could upgrade the monitor and dial down the settings to something playable on the current video card.

Hard choice,......

AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition @ 4ghz 3 cores
Gigabyte ma785gm-us2h
750gb WD Black Drive (main)
1tb seagate (data)
300gb seagate external firewire
4gb OCZ DDR2
MSI Radeon HD 7750 2gb

I picked up a 23" Acer 1920x1080 native resolution at a b&m store to test fps. It seems half way decent. For essentially $85ish more I can return said monitor/video card pick up another same spec acer new 650watt antec ps and a radeon hd 7850. I think I'm going to go that route.
